The Smart Idiot Box
On the homescreen, there is a little space above and below the tiles. The space above has a weather widget and the space below has a ticker that shows the latest news. Below the ticker is Task Switcher, which lets you switch between apps.
Games and apps downloaded from Google Play Store performed well. Gaming was a slight disappointment. At times, there was a lag between click and action performed while playing games like Angry Birds. But gaming is not the primary function of the EvoTV, so that can be excused.
On the other hand, the built-in media player was able to play all popular formats of music and video files. Accessing YouTube and browsing the internet was a smooth experience.
The device also lets you access and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations. But don’t expect to type long documents using the Evo Touch remote. The remote will help you type on the on-screen keyboard which is cumbersome and time-consuming. A wireless keyboard would be ideal for typing. The device also comes with EvoTV store (in addition to Google Play Store). Amkette has integrated open source entertainment software XBMC into the EvoTV. It displays media files and lets you access additional information related to movies, TV shows and more. But XBMC on EvoTV is a beta release and it crashed sometimes.
Price: Rs 11,495.
